Got a good laugh off of a few of the last posts! Thanks guys!

We need to laugh more, and at this point and on this subject, the RNC, it's over now, we have a candidate, so why not have a little fun with the spectacle of it all.

PS: I am voting third party. I don't have a huge amount of faith, in this action, but it's the principle of the thing.

Romney was handed everything in his life, has no idea how the majority of Americans live their lives, and basically stole the Republican nomination. Obama wasn't even born here. Who cares who wins, the interests backing both parties get what they want... yet again, while the rest of us lose everything... yet again, and the idiots that can't get past the 2 party system and only care about their party get to giggle in an hysterical fit as they pull the lever for another 4 years of corruption.

You can't buy true excitement. This is the biggest farce I've ever watched.



Correct, but you can buy true excrement which this clearly is.

Birther or not all you really have to do is follow the money to know exactly who is funding both candidates. This isn't rocket science, it's obvious corruption.

Ron Paul supporters come in all colors. I have my doubts about Obama's birthplace, but at this point, it will never be clearly answered for many of us. Not you, Outcast, we know you believe him.

I watched the Roll Call ...

1 - The Ron Paul folks ... VERY PROUD and not letting go or moving on.

2 - Scott Walker .. huge applause. Not surprised. He earned it.

3 - Mitt Romney's brother read the delegate count for his state ... very moving for him I'm sure.

4 - FOX NEWS ...
... their people talking over the roll call and through the roll call. Whereas CNN and even MSNBC didn't do that. (and I would have thought MSNBC would). ODD.

5 - The speeches are on too freak'n late at night. I want to watch them but I'm so dead dog tired I don't think I'll be able to. I'll have to catch them on YOUTUBE or something.

I don't know if it's lack of interest ... or bad weather ....
But for those that were there, when Mitt Romney went 'over the top' on his count,
the 'party' went on for about 30 seconds. It was pretty lackluster and not full of
much 'ooooomph' at all.

Kinda goes along with what I've said before .. the republicans are holding their
noses and voting for Romney only because they dislike Obama more. They
aren't excited about it.

Well hurray, it is now Mr. Cronyism Romney vs socialist entitlement Obama.

No matter who you choose, the American people lose (and as America falls, it takes the rest of the globe with it)

Well the RNC really isn't over yet...they just got this part out of the way at the beginning. Which is odd in itself...they usually wait until the end to do it.

Now we get to watch big name Republicans give speeches and try to out do each other in bashing Obama.

There is a good chance someone says something stupid if they go off script...and plus...the funny hats. I'm hoping to see the penis-like Elephant hats that they have had in the past.

Last election cycle I started a topic where people could say something nice about their least favorite politicians,

Yeah - - I think we agree (for once) on everything.

I do listen to talk radio. I try to pick less dramatic and more logical hosts - - preferably with no restrictions on call ins.

Most people do have a slant - - I try to adjust for that to get the base reality of position(s).

Yes, I noticed that too.

Not very diverse in that convention. But with the Republican party being over 90% white...this is exactly what we should expect.

But it is still a bit disturbing to see in 2012.

Naaah .. they've got the big names like Chris Christy giving the speeches. These are professionals who aren't the yutz's like Akin. Then again .. the dems have Biden who is a professional and continually goes off script saying stupid things .. so I guess it's possible Christy could step in it. But I kinda doubt it.

Biggest thing so far .... Scott Walker getting unending thunderous applause when he came to the mike to announce the count from Wisconsin ... and yet when Romney was officially nominated, the applause seemed forced and was rather short. Almost quiet compared to when Walker gave the count for his state. I think that says A LOT !!

I want to stay up for the speeches but I'm dead dog tired. (sjogrens does this).
I'll probably have to catch them on YOUTUBE and comment tomorrow.

Yeah...because Christy has never said anything outrageous


Ann Romney's speech is going to be standard cheerleader...but Christy is a bit of a wildcard and does sometimes say some colorful things...his should be interesting.


If I can find the speeches of the big names on youtube before I go to bed tonight, I'll throw them in this thread.

We also agree on marriage equality ... 'gay marriage' being a civil right.
We probably agree on the death penalty as well.
(I'm against it unless it's an extreme case in which it's for the safety of everyone else).
And I'm thinking we agree on keeping religion out of government laws.
(secular laws should run the government)

With America becoming more racially diverse with every passing day; this doesn't bode well for the GOP/RNC.

They do have a passionate base but the numbers just aren't there from my perspective.

Obama will pander to the minorities and if he can get out the vote, it will be a replay of 08.
